CHSS Webinar: Making the Grant Cycle Work for You

Greetings, Everyone!

     On Friday, March 19th, the members of The Cooperative for the Humanities and Social Sciences partnered with the Proposal Development Office to host a webinar, Making the Grant Cycle Work for You: Applying for ACLS, Guggenheim, NEH and Residential Grants in the Humanities and Social Sciences.

            Dr. Karen Petrone, Director of CHSS, and Dr. Krystle Sweda, Proposal Development Officer of the PDO welcomed Dr. Craig Koslofsky, professor and Faculty Grant Advisor with the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research at the University of Illinois. Dr. Koslofsky shared his extensive experience of the application process for research grants in the humanities and social sciences through a presentation structured around lessons from his own career and findings from his current writing project, a book about research proposal design and presentation.

            Dr. Koslofsky offered insights into the selection criteria for major grants and awards, including NEH Fellowships, European Research Institute Fellowships, the Fulbright Scholar Program, Guggenheim Fellowships, and National Humanities Center awards, giving additional advice on how grant seekers should continually hone their proposals through multiple years of attempts, and how they can most effectively frame their research ideas and convince reviewers.
